Magic Kingdom at night is one of my favorite Disney experiences. Magic Kingdom comes alive at night, doesn’t it? Cinderella’s Castle is amazing and beautiful from dawn to dusk. That special time as the sun is going down and when it is lit up for the night is gorgeous. Seriously magical! Magic Kingdom at night has some of my favorite attractions to enjoy after dark. So today, I am bringing you my Top Five Magic Kingdom Attractions to Enjoy at Night! Also, check out the posts from my Magical Blogorail co-pilots this week in the Orange Loop about Evenings at Disney!
Magic Kingdom Attraction #1: Dumbo the Flying Elephant. I mean, why not start out with the iconic attraction in Storybook Circus at Magic Kingdom?! Ever since they moved Dumbo the Flying Elephant to Storybook Circus and added a second set of flying elephants, this has become my favorite at night. Not only is it gorgeous in and of itself, but you also get amazing views of Magic Kingdom at night!
Magic Kingdom Attraction #2: Big Thunder Mountain. This one gets extra bonus points if you are riding it during the fireworks show in the evening! Plus, it is so pretty lit up at night. It sort of reminds me of Radiator Springs when it is lit at night. And if you can time it to ride it during Happily Ever After, even better! The views of the fireworks are amazing from this attraction!
Magic Kingdom Attraction #3: The Astro Orbiter. What type of post would this be if I didn’t include the Astro Orbiter in Tomorrowland as one of the Top 5 Magic Kingdom Attractions to Enjoy at Night?! You get stellar views of the park while up on the Astro Orbiter. But, it is also visually appealing in and of itself at night. It lights up the center of Tomorrowland, and gives you quite the view at the same time!
Magic Kingdom Attraction #4: The Mad Tea Party. This is one of those where the atmosphere speaks volumes. The lanterns are lit, and the views of Fantasyland’s lights as you spin can’t be beat! Plus, this attraction tends to be less crowded in the evening.
Magic Kingdom Attraction #5: Tomorrowland Transit Authority. I would be lying if I didn’t add this to my list of the best Magic Kingdom attractions to enjoy at night! Not only is night the time to relax and unwind after a fun dat at Magic Kingdom, but it is also best enjoyed from the Tomorrowland Transit Authority.
